Fabulous weather, great walking, rounded off with a trip to the Wool Festival at Cockermouth! It was amazing to discover the Lakes had better weather than Bath but we were very glad not to be wearing wet weather gear. The cottages that look out onto Skiddaw didnt disappoint and are dog friendly, so we all had a great time. The... More

3 cottages are on the lower floor leading outside to established secure gardens, perfect for children and pets. The upper floor (approached from the rear so independent) is a well stocked gallery with tearoom. The cottage that we occupied, Elderberry, was well appointed with all you could need for a comfortable stay. The twin bedroom is a little small but... More

When staying in the area I make a point of visiting this lovely gallery. There is so much to see. Original paintings, sculptures carving and carpentry are all beautifully displayed in this lovely gallery. A little cafe provides excellent tea, scones cakes etc and it is a joy just to sip your tea and admire all the artwork on display.

Having parked in a layby up at Winlatter Forest we decided to walk down one of the many trails to Thorntwaite. We stumbled upon the gallery and tea shop quite by accident. Had a lovely coffee and cake which prepared us for the return up the hill. If you love art and photography there were lots of amazing pictures of... More

We have just returned from a great trip to the Lake District. During our trip we visited the Thorntwaite Gallery, which is well worth a visit. There is a wide range of one of a kind items, along with great tea and cake, what could be better!

Just recently returned from a breath taking trip to the Lakes District of England. Was able to spend some time at the Thornthwaite Galleries and Teashop in Thornthwaite near Kenswick. The owner, Oliver, prides himself in show casing local artisans including sweeping oil paintings of the nearby landscape, handmade jewelry, hand carved wood pieces like exquisite lamps, tables and unusual...
